About this partnership
JA Europe and NN Group have partnered since 2014 to empower young people to embrace social innovation and master their own economic future. What began as a partnership involving six countries, has since blossomed to generate impact in 12 countries.
The partnership is composed of the following three activities.
• Social Innovation Camps are intensive idea-generating workshops where students gather in order to address a specific social business challenge. Social Innovation Camps take place in eight countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Netherlands, Romania, Spain and Turkey.
• Job Shadow Days give the opportunity for JA alumni to shadow NN volunteers in their workplace for one day in Hungary, Japan, Luxembourg, Poland and Spain.
• Social Innovation Relay (SIR) is a global initiative that brings together experienced business mentors and students to advance real world social problem solving in their local communities and beyond. Ten countries implement SIR: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Singapore, and Spain.
